A title tribute to an old fav...Clare will know who...
Two pair of Coquette socks are finished. I won't be making any more of these. As cute as they are...that cuff was a bitch! I never want to do a k3tog on size "0" needles again!In an effort to get my mind right about events beyond my control I've been communing with my Singer 327 the past couple of days. It's great therapy. I love her...My intention was to make The Saint a couple new pair of jammies. I picked up some flannel on sale yesterday for this pattern...Since the fabric was 60" wide I had remnant flannel. As I picked up the pile of scraps I noticed how soft, heavy and warm it was...hmmm, wonder if there would be enough to make a lap blankie for The Saint. Something to put across his lap while he's watching tv at night.
I grabbed the rotary cutter and a 6" by 12" ruler and started cutting and stacking up the pieces. Then got busy with my trusty old Singer and started sewing the resulting, odd length blocks together in strips. With Stephen King's Under the Dome playing in the background I whipped through the pieces and ended up with a nice 48" x 76" quilt top in just about 4 hours.
I'll run out later and get a polyester batt then make a nice warm sandwich.
Have a great weekend!
